The Doors


Pages: 1 2
Why is it always the girlfriend who gets the blame.. Jim was on drugs mostly tru the whole succes period of the Doors, he was there himself to put the needle in his vains, no matter who gave him the needle, he did the damage. In the Netherlands he was so waisted that he didn't even go on stage, and after short deliberation the band decided to play without him, and the key player would sing... Couldn't be that hard with the mostly weak and rambling lyrics or Jim. Ever read his poetry? If this is written by one of the best lyric writers ever, I wonder how bad are the rest!
The Doors made some good music, but I think that Jim Morrison is one of the most overrated artists of the last century, especially with the whole hype around his dead. Yeah, they were good, and he had something specially, but he was nowhere near the God that he is sometimes potraited as.....

Like all heroes that die young, he has been put on a to high pedestal, placed above people who are still living, but might have a better claim on that position.... (I also think this of Janis Joplin, Freddie Mercury, Kurt Cobain, and maybe even Jimi Hendrix... All people who did make a difference but are now raised to high to some sort of Godstatus to feed our aministic needs..... )

Well, there's a lot of talk going on about a band that is looooong gone. But I used to love them a lot....I still have 7 albums on vinyl... I put them on from time to time when the mood takes me. Jim's poetry was no good unless you were young and very stoned.

Another thing that may appeal to Doors fans.

In 1987 I was in a little record shop in Wollongong (Australia) looking thru the 'bargain bin'. There was a record called 'The Doors-Other Voices' by Manzarek, Densmore and Krieger.

I guess it was released after J.M kicked the bucket but never made much of an impression without the Lizard King at the helm.

They did one album which only had some sort of pop experimental jazzy free music stuff on it, but that never got ground....

From straight up,made in the U.S.A blues to the strident dischord of "heroin" from the sweet lost little girl to the cacophony of horse latitudes,with the lyrical talents shifting between a latter day john lydon and a poet laureate,privy to the mind of creation....was one man,indeed one group,ever able to span such diversity and make you believe,laugh,love, cry, hate,wonder.....and end up teaching you to treat all these imposters the same? For me....a definite no! Jim bless your beuatiful spirit.....may it infect us all.....I hope dionysus greeted you with the praise and love of a god for a prophet.Indians scattered on dawns highway bleeding.Ghosts crowd the young childs fragile,eggshell mind..............The end?

I highly doubt pamela killed jim. I read Ray Manzareks autobiography, and he made no mention of that whatsoever.

I'm a huge Doors fan. I wish that crappy band 3 Doors Down would stop coming up whenever someone searches the Doors!

The Doors were incredible musicians, especially Jim Morrison. I'm infactuated with music and my two biggest idols have to be Jim and John Lennon. They both made such time changing music, they tried to knock down barriers with their music which is why they were such succesful bands in their own right.

Ah... The Doors. I haven't actually always been so very keen on their music but that's changed. What I mean is that I've grown up in a non-musical family and this "discovering bands" -project has taken me more time than people in general.
However, yes. The Doors is something great and their sound is well-recognizeable, even catchy.
Spanish Caravan, No Me Moleste Mosquito, Love Me Two Times... There's no words for these master pieces. And there are so many more there... I'm just too lazy to list them all up.
The Doors has also its special meaning to me. But I'm not going to share that, haha.
Anyhow, big HURRAY!
